our cnn correspondents across israel as well as in gaza right now. earlier in the day, i went to orbkalon where i saw what was going on firsthand on the israeli side of the border. as soon as we got there, the sirens actually started going on. you could see people running towards shelters. i started running after israeli soldiers demanded that all of us -- our cnn crew, myself, we get to a shelter. usually they have about 30 seconds once the sirens go off before there actually is a rocket or missile that reaches the ground. in this particular case, when we were running, we got to a shelter. it was packed with soldiers, with civilians. and then we finally heard that thud. in this particular case, that iron dome, the israeli anti-missile defense shield, which has been financed at least in some measure by the united states, it worked. and the incoming rokts and missiles were destroyed in the air. later we walked outside and saw that plume of smoke showing those missiles, the rockets had been destroyed. earlier in the day at that same school where we had been -- the iron dome didn
. cnn chief white house correspondent jessica yellin and chief political correspondent gloria borger join us right now. gloria, guess i'll start with you. does the president have any leverage? >> he has a lot of leverage right now. i mean, if you look back to the debt ceiling in the summer of 2011, you recall the president was accused of negotiating with himself because it was sort of a time of weakness for him. right now, look, joe, he's just won re-election. 67% of the american public according to our polls believes that there should be a deal that contains a combination of spending cuts and tax increases. more than half of the american public says, you know what, we'd like the taxes on the wealthy to go up. so he does have public opinion on his side. just been re-elected. so he feels like, you know, he's got the wind at his back so to speak. >> jessica yellin, when you look at the situation a lot of democrats on capitol hill are suggesting they're ready to go over the fiscal cliff. what's the president saying about that? >> reporter: well, the white house says that that's not some

terrorist attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. cnn's senior congressional correspondent dana bash is joining us now from capitol hill with the very latest. what happened today, dana? >> reporter: wolf, it was one thing for susan rice to be criticized harshly yesterday by the three republicans she met with because they had been among her harshest critics, senators graham and mccain. today's meeting was different because she met with a republican who was among the remaining centerist republicans in the senate -- one of the most likely to throw susan rice a lifeline. it didn't happen. >> i continue to be troubled by the fact that the u.n. ambassador decided to play what was essentially a political role at the height of a contentious presidential election campaign. >> reporter: after meeting with rice for more than an hour, collins emerged questioning her judgment in giving the public what turned out to be incorrect information in the days after the deadly attack in benghazi. and the main republican was lukewarm about the prospect of rice as secretary of state. if president obama
. cnn reports every american went shopping over black friday weekend. really. almost every one of you. the headline on the website reads 247 million shoppers visited stores and websites black friday weekend.

how deep does this go? cnn has this story covered with correspondents at the pentagon this morning, at the white house this morning, and in beirut, a packed two hours ahead for you. we'll be talking with utah congressman jason chaffetz. maryland congressman elijah cummings. jim mcgreevey will be our guest, georgia congresswoman tom price and florida congresswoman debbie wasserman schultz joins us. it's tuesday, november 13th, "starting point" begins right now. >>> morning, welcome, everybody. our "starting point" this morning. breaking news. another top military general has now been linked to the sex scandal that forced out cia director david petraeus. forced him to resign. general john allen, the commander of u.s. and nato forces in afghanistan is now under investigation for alleged inappropriate communications with jill kelley. now investigators are said to be looking into the 20,000 to 30,000 pages of e-mails and other documents that he sent to her. kelley, of course, is the florida woman whose original complaint to the fbi about threatening e-mails inadvertently exposed the aff
general james "spider" marks. we were talking to him yesterday, of course. cnn military analyst, knows both general petraeus and paula broadwell well. thank you for talking with us. so, let's go to ms. kelley now, whose name has now been added to this mix. 20,000 to 30,000 e-mail documents is what we're hearing about general allen says that he's done nothing wrong acco according to what chris lawrence just told us from the pentagon. how unusual would this be? i mean, she is the honorary social ambassador, which basically means a party planner. fill me in on what this means and the implications. >> soledad, i need to tell you, this is incredibly, as you said, it's incredibly confusing. i don't know where to start. first, 20,000 to 30,000 e-mails, of course, that's what's been suggested. investigators will figure all that out. that's a heck of a lot of time behind the computer sending notes to a party planner. from a senior officer who has, obviously, a bunch of things on his plate. and he's burning a lot of daylight spending time with a party planner over e-mail. so that's just bizarre,
comedians. i love the op-eds you do for cnn.com. i wanted to talk to with you about all of the issues going on this week. i guess that everything that we're talking about all began when the c.i.a. surveillance operatives misunderstood david petraeus when he first said i want to tap that. did you ever imagine that we would see a soap soap ra like this? it is like the jersey shore for rich people. people copulating left and right and these weird tampa socialites. i don't know where to begin. what's your take on petraeus gate? >> i think you're right on the head. jersey shore is going off the air. this is the perfect replacement. great show. it's got drama. it's got women fight. that's what you need. you have to get them a room. this internet stuff is no good. let's see the fight. if you're the c.i.a. director and you can't keep an affair secret, you should be fired. >> john: thank you very much. if you're in d.c. and anyone in d.c. who can't keep an extramarital affair secret does not deserve to run a spy agency.
